    Thought it would be fun to suggest what we would like to see from EFX and for the love of all that is good and holy enough with the lightsabers.

    Since they seem to be on a pretty good helmet mission I would say don't repeat anything we have already seen and otherwise they seem to be doing incredible stuff on helmets.

    Making it not impossible to buy said helmets and thus having to go to aftermarket to get one's Raph McQuarrie Vader Concept helmet would be a start.

    Otherwise they seem to know what they are doing on helmets.

    Anywho what else:

    As I am working on these two things now I say

    Force Pike

    Vibro Axe

    Also:

    Luke's Binoculars

    Han's Hoth locator do-hicky box

    Gaffi Stick

    Jawa Blaster

    Some Small props would be nice. Even though I have these,

    Droid Caller

    Data Cylinder

    That would be cool but what they are already doing with their Legend line basically sums up what I want.

    Yeah, how about some non-Star Wars props.
    Im so sick of Star Wars props.
    You can get them anywhere.
    Bring us some things to the market we have never seen but always wanted from other movies.

    Nice list, but most of the items are not of that much interest I´m afraid, compared to the main-stream stuff, such as helmets and sabers .

    PLUS ..the Hoth Binocs are in the works already ;)
    Nearing completion of the missing parts to complete the kit!

    How about not announcing these things until they are in the final stages of development? I understand testing the waters by announcing way early, but then with missed shipping dates, people get frustrated. They must be doing something right though as people keep soaking these things up.

    I would have agreed but I also never would have thought there would be a demand for props with intentional flaws, bad paint jobs etc. A small demand but as has been proven it's there. I also would not have thought it financially workable to make a prop in numbers as low as 250. But they have done it twice. Still think it's odd but regardless I think a run of 250 Vibro Axes would sell.

    more blasters WITH LIGHT AND SOUND!...

    Im gonna go with a couple infamous bounty hunters weapons :)

    1: dlt-20a
    2: Valken-38 blaster rifle

    I must stress again with sound and lighting...lumps of metal are fun but lumps of metal with sound and lighting effects are more fun.

    I like the idea of a large, almost 1:1 tile from the Stargate itself. that would be cool.

    But I think a Boushh helmet and a gaffi staff would be cool too from SW.

    I have to say the MR thermal detonator is a lot of fun with the lights and sound. I would not have thought it would be as I remember toys with an electric motor hitting a piece of plastic as the sound effect as in the original Millennium Falcon but I have to admit the Thermal Detonator gets played with a bit.

    Oh yeah, Biker Scout Blaster. Idealized though with lights and sound. Okay do a Legend Edition as well that's all crappy and ugly for the others.

    Sorry, could not resist.

    I'm sorry, but I want to see an Obi-Wan Episode 1 lightsaber that is done correctly. None of this elite, polished, with gems stuff.

    I like your list.

    Gaffi Stick would be sweet and maybe for once not a super expensive prop.

    I would like to see some Star Wars items at lower price points. I think the BSG Top Gun stein and Trek stunt phaser are cool items at affordable prices. Not everything has to be a museum piece with a display case. I do like the stunt trooper helmets and their price points. I would like to see more helmets in that line.

    Amen. My EFX PCR Stormtrooper helmet is awesome. I liked it so much better then my MR Limited Edition Stormtrooper I sold it. I just would rather have put that money into something else. I could not stand the wonkyness, and the hand painted vent lines was what did it for me. Had to go. I know lots love all that and that is totally cool but for my taste it did not work. I'm gonna get a second PCR Stormy and turn it into an idealized ANH version with real vents.

    Legend and Limited is all great but for those who like more "the way it was supposed to look" kind of props, not to mention a little break for the wallet the PCR stuff is awesome.
